The April issue of Vogue Italy for the first time in its more than 100-year history came out with a white cover without graphics and photos. The photo of the cover appeared in Instagram edition on Wednesday, April 8.
According to Emanuele Farneti, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italy, under the photo, two weeks ago the editorial board was preparing the issue in collaboration with L’Uomo Vogue, but the management finally decided not to bypass the coronavirus pandemic.
“White is above all respect. “White is rebirth, light after darkness, the sum of all colours. “White is the color of the uniform of those who put their own lives on the line to save ours. White is for those who fill time and space with ideas, thoughts, stories, poems, music and care for others. After the 1929 crisis, white became the color of clothing that expresses the purity of the present and hope for the future. White became the night during which this number was played out in the most difficult conditions on both sides of the ocean. And finally, white is not the color of the losers, but the pure title page of a story that is just beginning,” Farneti says in his address.
